Message from the Dean

Dear Chicago Booth faculty and staff,

I want to thank you for all you have done to help the school and one another during these unprecedented times. While we have been forced to change the way we do our work in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, our faculty and staff have met the challenge with amazing creativity and energy.

Long before we entered this period, Booth faculty and staff excelled and contributed to an incredibly successful year for the school, and it is important that we recognize these achievements. The school’s continued growth is possible thanks to the enthusiasm, talent, and dedication of every one of you.

Our faculty and staff are critical to creating a work environment of trust and empowerment through respect for one another, excellence in our work, and integrity in our actions. Through these values, we continue to advance Booth’s mission of creating knowledge with enduring impact and influencing and educating current and future leaders.

Through the 2020 Chicago Booth Impact Awards, we will continue the tradition of recognizing outstanding staff and teams whose contributions exemplify these Booth values. Starting Monday, April 13, staff may submit nominations on behalf of a coworker or team who has demonstrated these core values throughout the year. Nominations can be submitted via the Chicago Booth Impact Awards website, where more details can be found. The nomination window will close at 11:59 p.m. CDT on June 12, and the winners will be announced at a future event.

I look forward to reviewing your nominations. Once again, I thank you for all of your contributions this year!

Best wishes,
